Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the
foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural

street murals and a high density of bars and cafes
make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people.
While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the
